Because I told Christi to hold me accountable on this, I HAD to go to the pool today. You see tomorrow I won't go to Columbia (town where I swim) because I have my last "read to 2nd graders" at 12:20. Kind of screws up the day, but I only got to do it a few other times this year and I know it is important to the kids. Then Saturday my daughter has piano lesson in the morning and her first piano recital in the afternoon. Sunday is her first communion (and I still need to prep for that!). So if I wanted to make it to the pool, today was the day.
Filled up the passes on my ARC card (25 for $82 with my coupon) and slipped into my wretchedly too large swimsuit (from last year - 3 sizes ago! - totally need to order that Speedo) and jumped in. Forty minutes later, I got out feeling like I had definitely worked out, but not dying or anything. I was averaging about 2:30/100 (way too much stopping at the wall) so I'm guessing around 1500-1600 yards (didn't really count). Now that I'm sitting her thinking about it, I do feel it in my arms a little and my abs are pretty sore from last night along with some bammy soreness (butt/hamstring).
Need to get back on the bike in the next couple of days. We'll see how tomorrow pans out for that.
In totally tri-unrelated news, this morning I woke up to an overdrawn checking account because I had put in the wrong date on the online bill pay and sent the mortgage 2 weeks early. Fees = $56 = FAIL! Even worse was the fact there was more than enough money in the money market account, but the bills come out of our checking account. The good news is that my husband didn't yell at me and we decided together to just pay the freakin' house off (we'd been discussing it for a while). So as of 9:30 this morning - I own this sucker free and clear = WIN!. Called the bank and since our accounts are with their sister bank, they could just take the money directly from the account and do it right then. How about that?! Debt free! No more worrying about when the bill pay takes it out of the account. Even called the insurance company and tax collector to send us those bills (since the escrow came off the principal at payoff apparently). One less thing to worry about. Nice - I tangled with TWO clients this week about getting paid! Oh the joys of self-employment.
